With no looming GM deadline until July, I decided to work on whatever struck my fancy this month. Here’s my scatterbrained results.
A Warlord Panhard 178 to replace my existing one from Army Group North. The AGN one has an integrated base that I was never quite pleased with.
A Jump Off Point, Force Morale Trackers and Patrol Markers for my Early War French.
Some plastic canoes from a child’s play set for my FIW Sharp Practice games at Historicon.
An Abomination from the old Carnevale line.
A scratch-built Woodland Indian smoking rack, again for my Historicon games.
Generic hedge gate from Warbases.
I think the small dinosaur is either from Iron Wind or Reaper and the Owlbear is from Otherworld.
Late war German Panzerschreck team from Warlord.
Some late war German NCOs from Victory Force and Warlord.
An early war MG34 team from Warlord.
Medusa from Otherworld, a Celtic Druid from Gorgon Studios and a zombie-thingy from maybe Reaper(?).
Artizan pulp Russians.
A murder of crows from Reaper – my first piece for Legends of the High Seas.

Whenever I’m in between projects or need a break, I have a (embarrassingly) large cache of miscellaneous figures that I pull from to cleanse the palette, so to speak. Here’s the latest batch.
Avolak Castings God of Perveristy
Uncle Mike’s Zombies
Uncle Mike’s Conglomerate and Ancient Warrior
Uncle Mike’s Missing Link and Executioner

Annually Wyrd Miniatures hosts Iron Painter – a competition that pairs painters up head to head in a single elimination tournament. Entries are paired up randomly, a theme is chosen and the contestants have two weeks to post an image of their work. These are then scored by three judges using three categories; theme, technical skill, and aesthetic. Whomever scores highest in the pairing moves on to the next round, and the process starts again and continues until there is only one painter left standing.
I have entered twice in the past. Once I received a DNF (did not finish), and once I was eliminated in the first round for scoring poorly in the theme category. This year I decided to throw my hat in the ring again and, just in time, was able to finish my entry for Round 1. The theme was “Fool’s Gold” so I took the literal route and painted up a jester from Guild of Harmony. He’s mounted on a tiered cobblestone base insert, overlooking a treasure pile made with rhinestones and glitter that my wife grabbed at the craft store. The other entries can be seen in the Round 1 Gallery, and there’s some amazing creativity, brush work, sculpting and scratch building to be seen.
